Samsung Announces Galaxy Fame, Young Android Phones

By - Source: Samsung | B 12 comments

Powered by 1GHz processor and 512 MB of RAM.

After being outed in a leaked roadmap and a benchmark, South Korean technology giant Samsung has officially announced the Galaxy Fame smartphone, as well as the Galaxy Young.

Running on Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, the Galaxy Fame sports a 3.5-inch HVGA TFT screen and is powered by an unspecified 1GHz processor, as well as 512 MB of RAM.

A rear 5-megapixel LED flash auto-focus camera is joined by a front-facing camera. A 1,300 mAh battery is included, as is NFC support and 4 GB of storage, which can be expanded up to 64 GB through a microSD card.

Several UI tweaks from Samsung will be added alongside Android, including motion gestures such as shaking the device to refresh information displayed on all active widgets, in addition to turning the device over to mute an incoming call.


Another addition to its affordable low-end Android slate is the Galaxy Young. It sports a 3.3-inch screen and will run on Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, accompanied by Project Butter, which makes a device run smoother. It's powered by an unspecified 1GHz processor and 768 MB of RAM.

It'll be offered in single and dual-SIM variants, as well as several colors: white, deep blue, wine red and metallic silver. The Galaxy Young also features a 3-megapixel camera with no LED flash, but it can record VGA videos at 24 frames per second and can play back WVGA recordings at 30 frames per second.

Internal storage of 4 GB is included, which can be expanded up to 64 GB via a microSD slot, joined by a 1,300 mAh battery.

Pricing and availability details have yet to be unveiled for both devices, but expect Samsung to reveal such information at the Mobile World Congress (February 25 to February 28).

    If these phones cost more than 100 bucks, then they wouldn't be worth getting.

    Another day...another Sammy phone....

    I like Samsung, they make neat products. I'm not sure I understand the reason for so many different Samsung phones as of late. Yes, I realize that not all devices are available in all markets but it still seems strange. If Apple were doing this readers here would have a field day.

    What is it about the Galaxy S II, S III, S IV, and Note 2 that doesn't cover these markets? Is it actually fiscally more beneficial to release a bunch of new phones with low-to-mid end specs than to re-price existing older phones with superior specs. It's an interesting strategy.

    Just thinking that right now. I add to it that it makes it hard for them to update the Android system of so many different phones.

    Why all the hate, some people would be happy spending $100-200 for a decent, updated phone without the need for insane contracts.

    free w/ contract and $100ish off would make this a good option for if your phne broke and you don't pay for insurance to get you by until you can get an upgrade assuming you do thsoe with contract upgrades why the hate? it isn't as good as a galaxy s3 but if it is 1/4 the price then its nto a bad deal
